Wigan Athletic whose former owner once broke his leg have gone into administration.

Will go bottom with 12 point deduction.

As per SSN just announced that Wigan Athletic have gone in to administration.
What effect might this have on the Championship table prior to the completion of the season?

It’s only 3 weeks since Wigan fans giving it the big one about their new owners splashing big money. Like Rovers fans and Venkys. Feel for the ordinary people at the club who’s jobs are at risk and the companies who won’t get paid by Wiggin Afff.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Whelan family buy it back out of Administration. Failing that they May well fold.

Championship football is simply unsustainable without premiership parachute money or a significant local benefactor.

I’d rather we had the former, but hell am I glad we have the latter.
